Redwood City, CA
This experiential workshop with Scrum co-founder Jeff McKenna and Agile Learning Labs' Chris Sims leads to ScrumMaster certification through the Scrum Alliance and is worth 14 PDUs from the Project Management Institute.
This was a true experience of learning by doing. . . Agile Learning Labs did a terrific job of instilling the concept and practice of Scrum to a class of Scrum newbies in a relatively compressed two-day workshop. I came away not only as a Certified ScrumMaster, but also with a lot of useful insights and the goal of elevating my organizations to the level of being true Scrum practitioners.

Learn from a Scrum founder
we are thrilled to be partnering with the one-and-only Jeff McKenna to put on this workshop. Jeff was a member of the very first Scrum team, and brings over 45 year of diverse experience to the classroom. You will have plenty of time to ask Jeff questions, and hear war-stories from one of Scrum's progenitors.
Learn by doing
Scrum is all about teamwork and dynamic interaction, so we wouldn't be setting a very good example if we spent 2 days lecturing at you from a podium. Instead, you will be playing serious learning games, modeling processes through project simulations, madly scribbling on index cards, creating charts, and cementing the learning through retrospective discussion. In short, you will learn Scrum by doing Scrum.
Keep learning after the class
We aren't satisfied to stamp 'Certified' on your forehead and wish you luck; we want to help you succeed with Scrum where it counts, back in your real world. That's why this class comes complete with 2 hours of follow-up coaching from Chris Sims.
Who should learn this stuff?
This workshop is for anyone who needs a solid understanding of Scrum, including: developers, testers, business analysts, technical managers, project managers, program managers, product managers, and even C-level executives. And, of course, it is a must for aspiring ScrumMasters.
